Thanks Geoff.

1851 shipping record has Parramatta - so children didn't know that in 1849 he was already up north in Clarence River district.

Marriages solemnized in the District of Clarence River in the Year 1855
No. 71
Jesse John Morris of the District of Clarence River, Bachelor
Anne Crabbe of the same District, Spinster
married in usual place of public worship Eatonsville by Licence with consent of Parents
Twenty fifth day of October 1855 By me Arthur E. Selwyn Minister of the District of Clarence River
Both by their mark
Witnesses: Wm. Southern of First Falls, Mary (her x mark) Timmins of Eatonsville

No county or parish set up there at that time.

Death 18989/1926 MORRIS ANN - FAITHFUL - ELIZABETH - GRAFTON * 27 Oct

The Richmond River Express and Casino Kyogle Advertiser (NSW) - Fri 29 Oct 1926 p.2
PERSONAL
The death has occurred of Mrs. Ann Morris at her residence, South Grafton. The deceased lady came to Australia from England with her parents at a very early age, and she resided practically all of her life in the Clarence River district, at Eatonsville and afterwards at Grafton. Mrs. Morrls, who reached the age of 86 years, is survived by two sons and two daughters.

I don't have arrival of Crabb(e) family or deaths for Ann's parents.
